I participated in an astonishing Get to Know Your US Senate Candidates event yesterday evening along with many of my Republican Senate challengers, before a GOP audience at the American Legion Hall in San Mateo.
The candidates threw plenty of red meat to the audience – rich in homophobia, Islamophobia, contempt for teachers and public education, a sprinkle of racism, and much more. They practically booed the Peace and Freedom candidate off the stage.
But when I spoke, without rancor or partisanship, challenging their party's conventional wisdom and the other speakers' misleading misstatements and with hard facts, they listened with rapt attention and concluded with a round of applause.
We caught it all on video, which is being edited for posting ASAP.
